For the past three years, The Eric Pepys Memorial Golf Tournament has raised over $200,000 in scholarship funds to support former foster youth in their pursuit of higher education. This fund, called the Advanced Studies Scholarship, provides former foster youth who have already earned a bachelor’s degree with support to continue their education in masters programs or other specialized advanced studies. To date we have had the privilege of providing scholarships to over 20 well-deserved foster youth.
This year’s event will take place on Monday, August 20, 2012, at the Santa Ana Country Club. It will include a golf tournament followed by a fun summer party with dinner, music and an auction, and will be highlighted by remarks from a youth in the Advanced Studies program.
